I was a bit disappointed in this story after liking the first one so well. For some reason I did not connect to the hero or heroine. I didn't warm up to them at all. What really clinched it for me was the scene (view spoiler) ...more

I got this book when I was wandering around a second-hand book shop. At first, I thought this is a stand-alone book. Then I began reading and found out that it was actually a trilogy.

Since I don't know where to buy the first book, I decided to just read it anyway.

I thought that reading the book without any knowledge about the first story will just confuse me, but I was wrong. I caught up with the story easily, so it was the first thing that made me like the book. The other was that it was writ

I received this as an eARC back in September. I breezed through it pretty easily, and it wasn't until the very, very end that I realized I was reading a book that was part of a series.

"Shadow of the Sheikh" is book two of Nina Bruhns "Immortal Sheikhs" series. Though, honestly, you can definitely read "Shadow of the Sheikh" without reading the first book.

Be prepared for a bit of a let down, however. While you may not need to read book one, you'll definitely want to read book three -- "Shadow of

The Immortal Sheikhs, book 2

Sheikh Shahin Aswadi—the harbinger of death, a ghostly figure who rides the wind in the form of a powerful black hawk. No mortal has dared approach his hidden oasis encampment for nearly a century. They are all terrified by the ruthless legend of al Shahin.

All but intrepid anthropologist Gemma Haliday. Determined to find her missing sister, Gemma has foolishly disregarded the dire warnings of local villagers…and walks straight into a trap Shahin has laid for her.

He ta
Middle book of the trilogy and it was a much better read than the first one.

We still have lots of Egyptology, ancient Gods, shapeshifting and a hungry vampire and our H/h this time Sheikh Shahin Aswadi, Leader of the Death Warriors and Gemma Halliday.

This book pays tribute to E.M. Hull The Sheik, which was a favourite of mine when I was a teenager.

If a war is to be averted between Light and Dark, Night and Day, then it is up to the Halliday sisters to prevail.

I absolutely loved this book. Too bad there isn't another one following the story.
This is a continuation of the Immortal Sheikhs series of three sisters who meet shapeshifters in the Egyptian desert. While search for her lost sister, she meets Sheikh Shahin Aswadi who has the legend of being able to turn into a Black Hawk. Once she walks into his world, he keeps her and she can not go back. She does not realize that she is walking into a trap. Shahin thinks that he will just be with her until he tires of her. But then finds that he does not ever want to be without her.
I found the story quite confusing. I think it would have helped if I had read the first instalment of the Immortal Sheikhs series. Perhaps then I would have better understood what was happening. I also don't think that the idea of immortal Egyptian royalty who are vampires that must feed on a mortal's blood once a year was believable for me. I guess I shouldn't read these kind of stories but I did give it a chance.
I read this trilogy out of order, starting with book 2 and working through book 3 (and have yet to read book 1).

Bruhns marries her love for Egypt and hieroglyphics with desert vampires and shape shifters, and viola! The Desert Trilogy that so far carries through with a 2.5 rating (unless book 1 changes that).
My God, Shahin is way sexier than Rhys :)
I thought I was readying some kind of Romeo and Juliet adaptation which only leaves you wanting to lonw how it all ends
However I have to say I thought this was way too short and hoing too quickly.

Slightly better than Lord of the desert..Things were explained more..To tell you the truth though nothing much happens..A ghost army yawn..I love reading about Egyptian romance and Sheikhs but this was Lukewarm at best..
Michelle Berry
Very silly, but entertaining.
Glynda Roy
I enjoyed this series. Start with first book Lord of the Desert, then this one, and last Vampire Sheikh. Very Good.
I give this 3 1/2 stars. It was good. The characters are great, nice storyline, overall nice romance.
